  • Il Pioppo Nero d'Avola is produced by Alessandro di Camporeale in the northwest of Sicily, a 45 minute drive from both Palermo and the town of Corleone, although the grapes for this bottling are probably grown in the southeast, closer to Siracusa and the namesake village of Avola. Aged for 6 months in steel tank, this Nero, like a lot of Sicilians, is richly textured and well balanced.
